Warzone MP5 Best Attachments

  • End of a loop: Agency Suppressor
  • Laser: Tiger Team Spotlight
  • handle: Bruiser Grip
  • Stock: Raider stock
  • Ammunition: STANAG 50 Rnd drum

The best Cold War MP5 gear is all about increasing the weapon’s mobility and lethality at close range. It may not do much damage in medium to long range combat, but it definitely shreds when used in close range firefights.

The Agency Suppressor increases the weapon’s recoil control while also completely removing the weapon’s muzzle flash, making it a must for any player looking to blast their enemies with a great deal of stealth.

The MP5 already has a lot of damage and a quick TTK, so a barrel is sacrificed for attachments like the Bruiser Grip, Raider stockand Tiger team in the spotlight – all of which boost your mobility and ADS.

In addition, the STANAG 50 ton drum gives you enough ammunition to dismantle multiple enemies.

Best Cold War MP5 Configuration in Warzone (Perks and Gear)

The Cold War MP5 is a good choice in Warzone.

  • advantage 1: EOD
  • advantage 2: overkill
  • advantage 3: Amped
  • Subordinate: STG44
  • Deadly: semtex
  • Tactical: Heart rate sensor

Like most meta loadouts in Warzone Pacific, our best MP5 loadout uses both the EOD and Amped Advantages.

Outside of Overkill, both Perks are chosen because they increase your survivability and speed of weapon switching. After all, reloading or slowing down mid-battle can often lead to unwanted trips to the Gulag mid-game.

While the overkill Perk allows the use of the extremely deadly STG44 gear, which is still one of the best Assault Rifles in Warzone Pacific (right next to the Kilo 141). Finally, both the semtex and Heart rate sensor help track down nearby enemies and wipe out camp crews with deadly explosive fire.

Just find your target, throw in a Semtex and rush your MP5 to claim a quick kill.

Best Cold War MP5 Gear Warzone Tips

The Cold War MP5 may have stiff competition due to the recent improvements and nerfs of Warzone Season 4, but this SMG is still more than capable of holding its own in-game. If you wanted to add this weapon to your arsenal, we’ve got you covered.

Here are some tips to make sure you dominate while using Cold War MP5:

  • As with most SMGs, this weapon is best suited for: close range firefights. While it can put up a decent fight in the mid-range, other Assault Rifles and even better-range SMGs will prevail, so we recommend Overkill for a stronger backup option.
  • For an Assault Rifle we recommend the STG44 or Cooper Carbine, and for the Sniper Rifle we recommend using the classics – either the Swiss K31 or the Kar98k.
  • The Heart rate sensor tactical is great for locating enemies in close proximity, even with its Warzone Pacific nerf. If you suspect an enemy is nearby, use this equipment to pinpoint their exact location and let the Cold War MP5 do the rest.
